He has kind of done a great job of balancing already though:

Seniors: DeJulius, Newman, Koval
Juniors: Adams-Woods, Banks, Davenport, Oguama
Sophomores: Hensley, Madsen, McGinnis, Saunders
Freshman: Lahkin

If he can get a freshman and senior in here, he kind of has a pretty standard distribution of players, and does allow for him to really be foundational for his program with 4 slots in the next class.

If we max out now, Kovol might be the only open scholarship for the class of 22’. Guessing Wes will want to bring in more than one guy in year #2.

The last thing you want to do is save a scholarship to even out the classes. If high end talent is available you go get it no matter what it does to class balance. There's no guarantee that talent will be there next year. And with this new transfer rule its likely you'll lose a player or two each year anyway.

If a top level guy wants to play at UC, a good coach will find a way to make it work even if the roster is seemingly full. The bottom end guys on the team can be convinced that transferring is in their best interest.

Of course. If there is a guy who walks in as a starter they will find room. They are not just trying to fill out a roster anymore. They will be really selective going forward. But barring a no doubter who is an upgrade over who is here, the staff will likely sit on the one that Banks is using now for an addition next year.

Bingo.

Plans can always change, but unless a great opportunity comes up, it's a smart play.

I'm guessing Lakhin will be working out in Cincinnati in June and the staff should get a good idea of if he is fully recovered and in good conditioning. Just based on the tape I've seen, I think the guy can play. Like most players new to Division I basketball, he will probably struggle defensively and look lost at times. But I also suspect he will flash some talent that hints at his potential in later seasons. Hope he's good to go. 10 minutes per game is really all we need from him this season barring injuries.

RE: Transfer portal
Further regarding our big man depth, one concern I have is that Ody has fouled at a rate similar to guys like Nysier Brooks, Vogt, and Diarra his first two seasons. We're going to need him to stay on the floor to be at our best. Koval seems to foul at a fairly average rate for a big guy, but how he adjusts to the physicality of AAC basketball remains to be seen.
